From Stronghold Games:
The world has been hit with mega earthquakes. The worst destruction devastated San Francisco and Venice, Italy. It’s time to rebuild and restore them to their former glory.
Aftershock is an area-control game from the designer of Ticket to Ride. Players will spend money to acquire cards, which are used to increase population, build bridges, and determine where aftershocks occur. You will negotiate with other players in order to score areas. Players with the higher population in these areas will score points. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins!
The city is bigger than ever! Aftershock: District 6 brings all the strategic fun of Aftershock to six players and introduces a brand new board mechanic. Area tokens are randomly placed in different areas and bring new challenges and rewards to the meeples placed there. With new, unique effects, District 6 brings Aftershock to a whole new level and ensures no two games are alike.
